Blogging, email marketing and social media are great ways to brand your healthcare facility. But to stand out from the crowd you need to diversify and be different.

Here are a few different ways to convert web traffic into new patients:

  • Webinars. Webinars are interactive and a great way to show your expertise and knowledge on a specific subject, such as a new medication to treat a rare disease. GoToWebinar and WebinarJam are two portals that can help host your webinar.
  • White Papers. There are many benefits in using white papers. Healthcare can become technical and advanced. A white paper can provide an outlet to spread your expertise and validate your credibility on a specific subject. For example, ask one of your physicians to create a white paper on a new procedure your facility is performing to treat cancer. Once the white paper is complete you can publish it to your website, which will help with your SEO as well as syndicate it on your social media outlets and via an email blast to your mailing list.
  • Podcasts. Podcasts are an effective, portable and convenient way to produce and deliver content to potential patients. A podcast provides a format for sharing your expertise. Audio files allow you to inject your enthusiasm and speaking skills to add an air of authority to the information that is often lacking in the written word.
